CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (27 entries)

James McFadden became the first Australian to win a feature race at Ohsweken Speedway by dominating the 25 lap Northern Summer Nationals A-Feature.  Fresh off his feature win on Friday night, Wayne Johnson led the first 5 laps of the Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Car feature before McFadden took over and drove away to the win. A great race developed for the runner-up spot, with Jessica Zemken eventually prevailing over Shane Stewart, Wayne Johnson, and Mitch Brown. The win was worth $3,000 to McFadden, and guaranteed him a starting spot in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals A-Feature on September 13.
